Acknowledging a Shift

Overview

Shiftboard's Acknowledgement Tool allows you to respond to a shift assignment by email or two-way SMS text. When you acknowledge the shift Shiftboard sends an email to your team's primary contact that confirms you are coming in for the shift.

How To Acknowledge a Shift

When a shift has been assigned to you it will appear on the schedule in blue if your site is using acknowledgement tools. Once you have acknowledged the assignment the shift will change color from blue (unacknowledged) to green (acknowledged).

1. Select Calendar on your navigation bar > schedule.

2. Select the shift you have been assigned, it will appear in blue.
